The Adirondack Park and adjacent areas contain thousands of lakes and ponds and hundreds of miles of rivers and streams, including the mountain lake that is the headwaters of the Hudson River. It can be considered one of the nations most valuable resources. Below are some of the more popular routes, though many of the best experiences can still be found by exploration.

Camping Permits for Kayak & Canoers

Camping permits are required for: (1) any party of ten or more, or (2) any party remaining in the same location for four or more nights. You are responsible for obtaining your own camping permit before your arrival from the State Forest Ranger for the district in which you will enter state lands. New York State now requires that anyone bringing --paying clients-- onto state land must have a Guide’s License. Non-profit organizations are exempt.

In accordance with state laws, (1) properly dispose of human wastes (burial at least 8- down and 150’ away from water or camp), (2) help maintain water quality by not washing directly in the lake or stream, (3) cut only wood that is both dead and down and (4) carry out all you carry in. Boiling or treating drinking water is recommended.
